The Washington Redskins will interview Cincinnati offensive coordinator Jay Gruden on Wednesday, as first reported by ESPN's Ed Werder Tuesday morning. Gruden will become the sixth person to interview for the position.
They remain interested in interviewing Vanderbilt's James Franklin, though according to CBS Sports, he's emerged as the front runner for the vacant Penn State position. There is no date set yet for the Redskins to interview Franklin and obviously his interest in the Nittany Lions position will dictate if that even happens.
The Redskins also have interest in interviewing San Diego offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt, San Francisco offensive coordinator Greg Roman, San Francisco defensive coordinator Vic Fangio and Cincinnati defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer.
